A member of the legendary Junk Monkeys (who still play around town on special occasions), Dave Boutette's solo material rocks and rolls around in quieter pastures on the alt-country side of the fence. An accessible, folksy style permeates a substantial passel of impressive tunes – some soft and warm as the sun in the wide Midwest sky, others bursting through the barn doors as anthemic, bar-slapping rockers, all reflecting a wry, hearty sincerity.
